Thrasymachus, 9/ 2/2009 - 12:45pm "The author of this article adds nothing to the health care debate. Zero. He seems to (amusingly so) make an attempt to associate himself with the intellectual community by implication and then proceeds to use "argumentum ad hominem" "ad nauseum."
I have watched some of the town hall meetings and the term "violence" does not seem to fit. Has the word been redefined? Perhaps this article is a attempt at the use of sarcasm, castigating both sides (but I doubt it). If so, I may be tempted to concur.
Citizens do have the right to express their opinions in the town square and to voice their objections when politicians flippantly ignore them or attempt to demean the concerns expressed.
I have concluded that the current health care reform debate is not about health care but rather about the prevailing ideological divide. I can only hope that the people of our country will continue the vigorous debate when this issue slips into the world of the "passe.""
